Bury through to next round

BURY Town will face Staines Town in the FA Cup third qualifying round after defeating Grays Athletic 4-1 last night.

Goals from Callum Kearns and Tom Bullard put Bury in control of their second round replay early on, but the home side pulled one back through Simon Thomas in the 63rd minute.

However, after Grays were reduced to ten men when Eljay Worrell was sent off, Kieran Leabon struck twice to confirm Bury’s superiority.

Bury join fellow Suffolk sides Leiston and Needham Market in the next round along with Essex non-league duo Braintree Town and Chelmsford City.
